Nice! 600 pull will be epic. You're not too far away. Haha, yeah, I can't really grind them either and I can always tell a bit of a strength boost because I manage to grind one up. I like a heavy single before reps too. Works a treat.
Good stuff, Tann.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.
